What happened to Matt? The answer is both simple and not-so-simple.
Matt, when he first joined us back in the long past days when we were filming Clayton's fan film Star Wars: The Evil Within, was at that time a young man with ADHD and a sheltered and naive outlook on life. We delighted in shocking him. Through us he witnessed his first transaction for sexual services, never believing that it happened outside of television and, one fateful Sunday morning he discovered that some of those "ladies of the night" were not as they seem.
The Matt that was introduced into the comic was that young and naive Matt. However, as time went on Matt was suddenly not that young and naive man anymore. He got a job with crown corporation and was suddenly doing some especially dangerous work for some very good money and subsequently became quite the stable and steady man.
We still see Matt at Keycon but rarely beyond that. As time went by we began to drift apart as friends sometimes do.
It felt insulting to the person that Matt has become to continue to portray him as that young man and somewhat one-dimensional character. So an executive decision was made by myself to replace him with Thomas.
And that's all there is to say about that.
